IFPDA Print Fair: @ Park Ave. Armory / NYC

February 15 - 18, 2024 Art Fairs
The 2024 IFPDA Print Fair returns to its historic home at the Park Avenue Armory, February 15–18. The IFPDA Print Fair is the oldest and largest art fair for prints and editions, showcasing printmakers, galleries, and publishers from across the globe. Now in its 31st year, the IFPDA is a must-attend event for curators, collectors, and artists who celebrate prints, editions, and printmaking in all its forms.


Dolan/Maxwell have devised a 3 part approach to mark the Print Fair’s return to the Armory with From Line to Light: international Modernist engravings; light as exuberant, luminous color in Contemporary abstract works on paper, and, light as means for defining human likeness.  


Modern Engraving:  Engraving as a technique was nearly abandoned by artists before the revival of interest in this ancient method in the 1920s. We have splendid examples from the last 100 years including works by Akira Abe, John Ferren, Fred Becker, Stanley William Hayter, Joseph Hecht, Terry Haass, Takesada Matsutani, Gabor Peterdi, and Helen Phillips. 


Luminous Color: Steven Ford, Robert Blackburn, Vivienne Browne, Nona Hershey, Stanley William Hayter, Emily Mason, and Betye Saar.  Of special note are rare and complex works by Ed Clark made at Robert Blackburn’s renowned Printmaking Workshop.


Human Likeness: Prints and works on paper that explore and celebrate works that convey a range of psychological states from tenderness to power. We include works from Dexter Davis’s Ghosts Series, along with observation-based works by Ernest Crichlow, Dox Thrash & Charles White. We will show for the first time ever Allan Edmunds’s print collage celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. and the 1963 Civil Rights March in Washington DC.
